I’m Gene. I am a social entrepreneur. I run a business to make money; however, the “social” part means I am here to make a difference too. I have started many businesses and each one of them has been quite successful in terms of money and lifestyle, but all of them struggled in the beginning. It is easy to look back now and smile at the mistakes I made and the stress I caused myself while I was “in the trenches”, but it was not easy back then.
I was running myself ragged and not getting the results I wanted. When you are “in the trenches” you feel like you are spinning your wheels. Because you are constantly worried about things like payroll and keeping clients happy, I had no one to challenge me and hold me accountable to what I wanted to create.
I made a discovery that changed it all. I began to focus my business (or some call it niching). Honestly, I resisted FOCUSING at first; however, I realized that was essential to the journey to find success and financial freedom. I made millions once I figured this out for myself.
Then a new twist came my way that caused me to leave that old business behind and start a new journey. To be blunt…I lost $3 million in one day, and that moment became a turning point for me that allowed me to create a new business to support and guide business owners “in the trenches” of their own business.
I searched out mentors, coaches and experienced entrepreneurs to discover a deeper understanding of myself and was essential in my journey so that I can eventually help others. I help business owners with new strategies and the much needed support to make their dreams come alive. I am SO thrilled that this is my business because each and every day I know I am making a difference in the world.
